Author Notes: There's nothing quite like going to the farmers’ market and just looking at what’s in season — what looks ripe and fresh and delicious. This salad works to include some fall flavors with a really unique dressing. As a plus, it goes perfectly as a side dish with a ribeye or roasted chicken! Cava Grill
